The Hospice & Palliative Education program was created to provide additional education to the South Carolina community on what to look for when selecting a hospice or palliative care program for a loved one or yourself and information on hospice and palliative care organizations in your area.
The Education program is pleased to provide FREE grief resources to youth and their parents/guardians who have experienced the loss of a loved one.
About the resources:
Heart Shaped Pickles is based on a true story. When Jenny’s grandpas die within weeks of each other, her connection to them continues through her discovery of heart shapes all around her. Illustrations invite children to color, encouraging creativity. For adults, the booklet includes a discussion guide and “8 Things Kids Can Teach Grownups About Grief.”
When Teens are grieving is based on the award-winning book, Weird Is Normal When Teenagers Grieve, this unique booklet shares teen author Jenny Wheeler’s grief story and validates for teens that they have the right to grieve in their own ways. Professional insights are provided throughout by therapists specializing in grief support.
